Aurora Eora is a new cultural experience at Barangaroo, bringing its stories to life through song and art.

Aurora Eora is a large-scale sound installation transforming the Cutaway at Barangaroo into an immersive harmonic experience like no other from Sunday 26 March to 17 April 2017.

The space will be filled with the sounds of an original composition, named Aurora Eora, written by emerging composer Alice Chance, and performed and recorded by the Sydney Children’s Choir.

The song is one of six songs composed by Chance that represent moments in Barangaroo’s rich history, telling the stories of the continuity of Australia’s First Peoples, Barangaroo and Bennelong’s first encounter with European settlers, the colonial town, finding work on the Hungry Mile during the Great Depression and the sounds of the urban city.

To animate these stories and songs, Barangaroo has partnered with Lendlease and Art Month Sydney to curate an outdoor public art exhibition of four new contemporary artworks that respond to the compositions. The works on hoardings are by acclaimed contemporary Australian artists Reko Rennie, Tony Albert, Karen Black and Joan Ross. A new work by artist Gemma Smith will be a digital-only experience.
